I suggested this restaurant (having had a great dinner there the week prior) for a Christmas dinner out with friends. We got there at 5:30, were just about the only ppl in the place, and had no sooner ordered our drinks than the manager comes over and pushes us to order our dinner, unless we wanted to wait forever.

I was so surprised to find such an upscale dining choice in Buford. The service was impeccable and food just luscious. We got there early on a Fri. night and were seated immediately. I suggest reservations in season (warm weather) and on weekends. We'll go back often. Specials are fab.

There's a separate lunch menu with plenty of choice. Excellent burgers, good coffee and a nice take on the shrimp po' boy. Servers friendly and service was quick. Excellent value. Would love to come back for dinner sometime.

My wife and I had dinner here and were very impressed. Spinach salad had a light and nice dressing. Had she crab soup and escargot also. Nicely done. Entrees of swordfish with risotto for me and spicy shrimp with penne pasta for wife. No room for dessert. Service was excellent.

This is a perfect place for quiet dinner or a celebration. A friend recommended we try this little gem for our anniversary. It is in downtown Buford, GA in a beautiful old building. The services was outstanding and the food was the best I have had since moving to the area. Reservations are not required but they are a good... More

went here for a business dinner, it was an off night so I cannot discuss the piano bar or live entertainment. The food selection is good, lots of choices in meat and fish. The server was not the best, not a lot of personality. Maybe just an off night. Also not a great bar selection, standard beers and nothing special... More

The host promptly greeted and seated my wife... More

After reading the glowing reviews I picked this over a known restaurant quantity - Aqua Terra - also in downtown Buford, GA - for a couples night out with friends. My mistake #1. We had an early reservation - almost no one in the place when we arrived and we were seated by the Mgr. in a corner, square table,... More
